Volpara Health Technologies (VHT) – buy on weakness
VHT has been trading in a strong up trend since May 2017 which is still firmly intact. The recent price action breached resistance of $0.87 showing that buying interest remains strong. The momentum indicators are constructive and we favour higher price levels over the medium term. The first potential upside price target is $0.95 however higher price levels are achievable over the long term.
Any short term share price weakness would provide a great buying opportunity.
APA Group (APA) – target reached
In our last update on April 30, 2018 we discussed the bullish implications from the RSI indicator development and the likelihood of the price breaking out of its trading range. The expected breakout has occurred and our initial upside price target of $8.80 has now been reached. At this point there is no signal that the rally is over, however the price is facing dynamic resistance around $9.00 and overbought momentum readings on the RSI indicator.
Given this resistance we are not lifting our short term price target.
QBE Insurance Group (QBE) – oversold
QBE has been trading in a down trend over the past year which remains firmly intact. The current short term down swing has approached its key support of $9.22 where initial buying interest is likely to arise. The RSI and the stochastic indicators have reached oversold territory suggesting that the price is likely to bounce in the short term.
The first potential upside price target is $10.20 however the price could overshoot to $10.40.
Galaxy Resources (GXY) – lifting our target
In our last update on April 9, 2018 we discussed the likelihood of the price trading higher and recommended clients buy the stock at $3.04. A strong rally has unfolded over the past two months and our initial upside price target of $3.40 has now been reached.
The daily chart remains constructive and we favour higher prices over the medium term. Therefore, we lift our price target to $4.20.
Southern Cross Media (SXL) – bullish breakout
SXL has been trading in a primary down trend over the past year which appears to be reversing direction. The long term down trend line and the key resistance of $1.25 are both broken upwards, suggesting that higher prices are likely to unfold over the medium term. The first potential upside price target based on the breakout is $1.40.
Over the long term, higher price levels are achievable.
